Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 222455
Kernel oops when starting pcscd on a Dell Lattitude D620.
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:18:02 EST
Description of problem:
After installing the latest RHEL5 beta tree (RHEL5-Server-20070105) when i try
to boot up the system it hangs when trying to start the pcscd service. Only a
powercycle of the laptop brings it back to live.
After some investigation it seems that the pcscd tries to load the module for
the O2 Micro Oz776 SmartCard reader and then oopses and hangs the whole system.
Unfortunately the oops doesn't land in any logfile. If there is a way to capture
that i'd be more than happy to provide it ofc.
I've also tried the latest kernel from the nightly tree, same problem.
All this used to work before christmas, so at least for me in beta it's a
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest RHEL5 tree on a Dell Lattitude D620
3. Watch it hang during pcscd service start
System hangs in 1st reboot after installation.
System should boot up properly.
Hi, Phil. Does this problem still exist with the RHEL5.1 beta kernel?
Just tested it today, works correctly now and no more hangs.
So this bug can be closed.
Thanks for the fix,
Read ya, Phil
Since we suspect this problem was fixed in RHEL5.1, which is not yet
released, I'm reopening this bug so that it can be put into MODIFIED
state. It will later be closed (after Don adds it to the advisory).
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information

if the solution does not work for you.
